DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- The Umpqua Valley Winegrowers Association and the United Community Action Network food bank are teaming up for the second year in a row for "Pouring Generosity."

The food bank has partnered with wineries across the Umpqua Valley, aiming to raise $15,000 for the food bank.

Abacela Winery co-owner Hilda Jones said this year, 12 different wineries are participating, each giving back in different ways.

“They’ve gone to all the wineries -- different wineries -- everybody is doing something different, I think,” Jones said. “For us, every bottle of merlot that you buy in the month of July, one dollar of that purchase goes to UCAN.”

The list of participating wineries is as follows:

• Abacela Winery
• Becker Vineyard
• Bradley Vineyards
• Brandborg Vineyard & Winery
• Delfino Vineyards
• Ferraro Family Vineyards
• Henry Estate Winery
• Melrose Vineyards
• Misty Oaks Vineyard
• Reustle Prayer Rock Vineyards
• Season Cellars
• Triple Oak Vineyard

You can help these wineries “pour generosity” by giving them a visit any time in July or August.
